I'd be interested in this perspective too. I'm on the list for an eventual set of LCD-2's, and a long-time Maggie owner. I invested a lot of time and money to get the most out of the Maggies, bi-amping them, getting rid of the factory cross-over w. a Marchand electronic X/O, and rewiring them with Vampire wire, and adding a set of Audiokinesis Swarm subs (4 subs). Now my man-cave delivers music that is visceral and exciting and amazingly detailed compared to what stock Maggies deliver. I'm not much of a headphone guy, generally. Mostly early-morning/late night, to keep from waking the rest of the family. And of course I have 'phones on while working during the day on the computer. But I'm hoping the Audez'e's will deliver some of that Maggie-like magic!
I have a feeling the LCD-2's (with the right source/amp) would convert you to a headphone guy! Or at the very least forcing that headphone rig to get quite a bit more listening time. :) But I agree an amazing speaker rig is a different experience than headphones, I love both.
